Jose Mourinho has provided fitness updates for a trio of attackers ahead of Tottenham’s London derby clash against Fulham tomorrow.

The Spurs head coach revealed that Gareth Bale was not suffering from a serious injury but could be out for a few weeks.

He also added that he doubted whether Lucas Moura or Carlos Vinicius would be fit enough to face Fulham on Wednesday.

All three of these players missed the recent trip to Molineux to face Wolves at the weekend, with Spurs only managing to secure a point from the encounter.

In terms of attackers, this leaves Mourinho with the likes of Harry Kane, Heung-min Son, Steven Bergwijn, Erik Lamela, and Jack Clarke to choose from.

Tottenham are in desperate need of a win against Scott Parker’s side this week as they are currently without one in four Premier League games, picking up just two points in that time.

On the fitness of Bale, Moura, and Vinicius, Mourinho said (Football London): “No I don’t expect him [Bale] to be fit and also I have my doubts that Lucas and Vinicius can be fit for Fulham.”

On Bale, he added: “I wouldn’t say it’s serious but I’d say a few weeks.”
